The otter is playful and curious
His bed is made of kelp
When it comes to finding food
This creature needs no help

His massive body stretching himself out into the peaceful night.

After days of rain;
I watched an otter feeding
in loch's calm water

Leaving silver trail
as he dived joyfully in
to plunder for lunch

Jesus aka Aquaman
As Jesus was walking on water
He plotted to get God to barter
When God heard his pleas
He fell to his knees
And found he could swim like an otter...

  Snow laden mountains -
  Sun sparkles like diamonds
  on icy cold loch

  Heart leaps with joy - 
  playful otter is crowned by
  bejewelled water

And Kotter paid his otter

Once an Amishman's young daughter
Brought home a strange talking otter.
Running in from the field
To her church she revealed,
Be ye pleased to meet our new brodder....

Water Otter
There once was a very odd otter
Who was strangely afraid of the water
He was an otter and yet
There was no getting his fur wet
A great disappointment to his father

Nineteen fishes and an otter
Wondered if it could be hotter
But they didn't know if it could -
They had gone away for good
Reason? Simple - Out of water!

For contest - Out of water
My second limerick...

Premium Member The Dinosaur came to 2020
Why did you bring him here? I asked my silly insane daughter.
I thought he was welcome, she replied. It is 2020, right?
The dinosaur is not welcome yet, this year is for the otter.
Getting him to re-hibernate was truly a horrible ugly fight.

If you should see an otter
Disappear beneath the water,
Whether in a brook
Or in the briny sea,
Just let me say, it's best you
Don't call a lifeguard to the rescue,      
For in the water is exactly                      
Where an otter oughter be.

Premium Member Love's Lonely Song
The surf pounds against cliff.
I beat my pillow moaning. 
You are gone, your heart of stone
not swayed by my tears.

Onoko*-san, the bringer 
who has seeded my garden,
return like the sea otter
through the waves to me.

*onoko is the Ainu word for man...

During a Round of Golf at Pebble Beach
On Pebble Beach's seventh green
I paused to watch an otter.
He dove, cavorted, spun around,
An acrobat on water.
Then lolling, drifting, eyeing me
He twitched brown nose and whiskers.
His thought, that moment, mirrored mine:
"He plays all day, that rascal."

Little Sister Do You Remember
Do you remember 
When the moon
Danced with sun
On an early spring morning
When we use to rise
Like eagles in the sky
When we skipped
Like an otter in the sea
When butterflies
Multiplied in the fields
As we walked
Hand in hand to school
Little sister do you remember

Kitchi the otter escaped from the zoo

  He has caused all sorts of hullabaloo

    He can't have gone far

      He was last seen in Flanigan's bar

        Sipping a Budwieser brew

                                       And she was  a globe trotter
                                                  While in Spain 
                                                     In disdain

Weekend Getaway
Wading in a branch
trickling slowly along to the ocean.
Smell of decaying leaves and honeysuckle in the air.
Tadpoles, crawfish swimming by toes in Swift creek.

River otter curiously watching
the boys playing, splashing in the water
on a hot August day.

Bream jumping, splashing 
Trying to remove the land creatures 
From their watery domain....

Fishing Salmon
Sun shinning cool breeze river water.
Lake glass underneath shaded trees swimming otter.

Wondering if the fish is ever to going bite.
Line in water with a non floating bobber gripping just right.

Bait on tight waiting impatiently. 
Wishing for a strike from the greatest of Kings.

Soon will be a battle between me and fish.
Experiences will tell when I eat that salmon dish....

The Spirit of Otter Lake (roundel)
At Otter Lake, whilst welkin starry clear,
A ghostly wail bruits eerily despair,
And eyes appear alit like embers near,
At Otter Lake.

Avaunt, the trappers pray, bedim thy glare;
In sooth, thy mourning grieves a bygone year,
From earthly bourn, ascend to angels care.

Arose a zephyr, thick as bloodied air,
And shrieking withered every soul with fear,
To where a man durst lay his footsteps there,
At Otter Lake.

The seashore
As I sat by the seashore,
Oh, how I wished for more,
I stepped into the water,
I saw a sea otter,
All by the seashore,
I smiled with delight,
And disappeared into the night,
I was swimming with fury,
Soon my whereabouts became blurry,
Never again was I found,
Never again on the ground,
For death became more,
All by the seashore

This is a poem I wrote way back when i was 12, I'm surprised by how good I was back then- so I decided to post it :) enjoy...

Premium Member The River

          From high on the mountain it runs to the sea
          Along the way it kisses the wood, the land
          The otter, the egret, the fish, wild and free
          Such beauty bestowed by an almighty hand
          I sit and wonder what its secrets might be
          What lies beneath it’s face, what touches it’s sand
          This river on whose ripples the sunbeams gleam
          The place where I come to smile, to cry… to dream
